Washington D.C. Studies The Gays

An HIV study highlighted in The Washington Post yields a few surprises.

-14% of gay men in the District are thought to be HIV positive, a rate that is five times higher than that found in the overall adult population.

-more than a third of the 500 or so sexually active gay men who participated reported not knowing the HIV status of their last sex partner.

-according to this study, men over 30 are reporting that they are being tested for HIV less frequently, they are having sex without condoms more frequently and had more sex partners.

-from the silver lining dept.: cases of full blown AIDS and AIDS-related deaths have declined.
